I know I’m not the only one when I say that inspiration can be hard to come by! I’m going to share about one of my favorite ways of finding inspiration: creative dates. Dates with other artists! I think we create some of our best work when we have someone to bounce ideas from, learn from, and grow with as a creative. Whether that means a writing challenge, trying a new recipe you made together, shooting the same subject, asking for perspective on a painting, or singing and playing instruments together, creating with another person can only grow your ability to create.Read More
To try to encapsulate this year’s Delight and Be retreat is going to be a challenge, so bear with me. Being a first-timer, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I knew God was going to be at work there. I just wasn’t prepared for how much He would be at work and how He would do it.

Maybe you are a writer, a designer, or a baker. Maybe you have a somewhat mundane job, but finding ways to be creative and different gives you a little thrill inside.
What is that feeling, anyway? It's almost tangible, you can just about taste it. It feels so strong and real, but somehow nameless at the same time.Read More
Let's talk about this thing called the heart. What actually is it? Because honestly, it's a seriously overused word. The power of what the heart is capable of is lost in the madness of this world.
We get excited about something, and we talk about our hearts. But then something new comes along, and our hearts are pulled in a different direction. The other thing isn't that fun anymore, it's taking actual work and time and this new thing is shiny and, oh! That giddy feeling? I'm pretty sure that is passion.....right?Read More
